, president obama has been trending ahead by a few points when you look at a number of polls. that's not a comfortable lead for the obama campaign. but it is a significant one. it is a consistent one. and they're trying to maintain that as they move towards election day. and they try to keep wisconsin as well as the other midwestern firewall states, ohio and iowa, in their column, fred. >> and all this while the president says the recovery from the storm is still first priority. how is he trying to stay ahead of that, at the same time campaign to keep his job? >> that's right. it's a tricky line to walk because here he is three days out from election day. he has to be campaigning obviously, and that's the sense the obama campaign has, but he has to be careful, especially as some more bad weather heads to that very vulnerable region. the difference today not only is president obama staying in close contact with his advisers, with cabinet secretaries and with local officials in these storm effected areas, but he actually has members of his cabinet blanketing the effected regions, his secre
